By Paul Higgins

Using the Hulu Plus application on your Blu-ray player allows you to watch episodes of popular TV shows or movies on your television set. Hulu Plus is a service that allows its subscribers to legally watch streaming TV shows or movies on a computer, mobile device or compatible television set or Blu-ray player. You can connect to Hulu Plus from a compatible Blu-ray player by downloading the application and then logging in to the service.

Things You'll Need

  • Compatible Blu-ray player
  • RJ-45 network cable

Step 1

Connect one end of the network cable to the RJ-45 port at the back of your Blu-ray player and the other end to a free port on your modem or router.

Step 2

Download and install the Hulu Plus application if needed. While some Blu-ray players contain a native version of the application, others require you to manually download it. To manually download the Hulu Plus application, launch your Blu-ray player's app store, search for "Hulu Plus" and select "Download" or "Install."

Step 3

Launch the Hulu Plus application by selecting it in your Blu-ray player's "Applications" menu. Select "Log in to Hulu Plus" by using the remote control, and use the on-screen keyboard to input your account credentials.

Step 4

Select the "Login" button and press the "Enter" or "OK" button on your remote control.
